    Summary

    This is an AU in which the elemental countries are modern nation-states locked into an uneasy regional standoff. Sakura, Naruto, and Sasuke (and others!) meet at a summer camp as children, and later end up working both to create a more lasting peace and to move their country away from a clan-based oligarchy toward a true democracy. Or something like that. I was just trying to write a 'camp counselors at a lake' thing, but the sociopolitical background took me hostage and ran away with my writing mojo. *wry*

    Oh my god, so adorable! And as always I love, love, love intricate world-building. Modern-yet-mystical AU ftw!

    Summary

    No one suspects Arthur. He's too practical, too organized, too sensible to believe in the supernatural.

    Based on the kink meme prompt: Arthur's real name is Cole Sear.

    I love this story. It's a beautiful, slightly melancholy blend of fandoms that adds hidden depths to both. You know a fic's hit perfection when you have a hard time remembering it's not actually canon. :)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    As the name suggests, a modern AU of Maleficent. But wonderfully, not a mundane AU, nor a masquerade - no, we have an open urban magic setting! Instead of kingdoms and war it's corporations and legislation. Instead of curses and an indebted Changed raven servant it's wards-and-blessings-for-sale Inc. and a raven-shifter PA. There is still anti-magic bigotry. Stefan is still a betraying, ambitious, douchecanoe high muckety-muck. Maleficent is still a uniquely strong magician and powerful woman fighting anti-magic sentiment. Maleficent still lays - well, not a curse. Technically. (But man, some blessings can be interestingly worded). Diaval is still totally into her (that counts as canon, right? It's so obvious!). In all, utterly amazing.

    Pretty sure this is indeed the coolest nature video ever. The song is Hello Tomorrow by Karen O, and I will never be able to listen to it now without picturing mushrooms in rain.

    Summary

    In a world ruled by mad science, Sherlock is a mad scientist and John is clearly his minion. Right? Right. Obviously.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love this short. Of course the Girl Genius-verse version of BBC Sherlock would have everyone wondering, not whether John Watson is straight or gay or Sherlock-sexual (who cares about that?), but whether he's a spark or a minion or actually an ordinary guy. Fights must break out among fans over their relationship status - that is, whether he's in loyalty with Sherlock or he's a minion but not Sherlock's or they're lab partners or what. Because what else would they fight over...

    Also, as always I appreciate worldbuilding beyond all ability to can, especially the small things passed over by the characters as too commonplace to take note of like terminology and slang - everyone knows what it means in-universe so why bother to clarify it, but it's new to us so it's a shiny, shiny gem!
